At the peak of High Knob Mountain stood one of the few remaining fire towers of the Appalachian Mountains. Built in 1938–39 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the original structure was a 14′ × 14′ wooden house. The most recent three-story structure was built by the Flat woods Job Corps in 1978–79. High Knob’s fire tower is listed in the National Historic Lookout Registry.
